» About Earthworm Castings
Earthworm castings were created by “Mother Nature” for the purpose of promoting optimum plant growth and everything required to provide it is found in them.
When you concentrate this odorless, non-burning miracle of nature in greater concentrations than usually found in nature, the results are truly spectacular.
Earthworm castings have a high concentration of beneficial bacteria and microbes added to them by the earthworm in the digestive process. These microscopic creatures help different elements of the soil work in conjunction with each other to create healthy, working soil that provides the best possible environment for optimum growth.
Chemical fertilizers usually provide only synthetic nutrients many of which are quickly lost into the soil with watering, as a plant's root system can only absorb so much. Chemical fertilizers are most often detrimental to soil microbiology, by-passing and often destroying much of its beneficial microbial and bacterial activity. At the same time, many of these synthetic nutrients are absorbed into your plants and food. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in both farms and gardens have become our country's leading cause of water pollution.
